Week 36 Friday (9/19/14)

Recipe Review       
Today’s Recipe and Location:           PW’s Creamy Mashed Potatoes
         Found in: The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Recipes from an Accidental Country Girl   Pages:  146 - 149      Copyright:  2009  Harper Collins

I figured out that there are 457 calories per serving, if 8 servings are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

May I just state the obvious
mashed potatoes just don't photograph well

         Being a meat and potatoes girl makes this an amazing dish for me. Ree makes mashed potatoes like my best friend, Donna Dowd, does every holiday. They are both filled with goodness. The creamy part comes from the cream cheese and half-and-half. Tonight, my dreams will be of a great meal filled with creamy potatoes!
